will say both the f.b.i. and the department of defense, specifically d.o.d., for that matter all of us have a role to play in providing that policymakers, operators, etc. i also completely agree with i think underlying tenet of the bill that you passed yesterday, which recognizes the importance of partnership between the government. we certainly collectively cannot do it all. and we do need the help and assistance and cooperation of the civil sector. and so that's -- i guess that's all i'd say to answer the question. >> if each of you could just talk a little bit about the greatest cyberthreats from your perspectives. is it foreign governments? is it it terrorists? is it criminals? where is the biggest threat? >> let me start and others can contribute. any time you're assessing threat, there are obviously two dimensions. one is the capability, and the other dimension is intent. certainly from a capability standpoint in terms of ability --reek damage to the country wreak damage to the country, we are more concerned with the potential of the nation state, and obviously, we have called this ou
. the united states of america is by adam, an ed american al qaeda on the f.b.i.'s most wanted list who taunts america and says this, you can see it on buzz feed, america is absolutely awash with . sily attainable firearms large capacity clips. you can get them even without ny identification. this from the most wanted on the f.b.i. list. we need to vote in the united states congress. if these young children had the courage to go after their assailant, if the teachers stepped in the way to protect, does congress have the will and the courage to stand up and merely do what it was elected to do? cast a vote in both chambers. cast a vote on behalf of the american people. cast a vote on behalf of these children, on behalf of these parents who have come here to besiege the united states its ess only to do responsibility, to do what we .ake the oath of office for 92% of the american people believe that we need universal background checks. we have to make sure that our body, both the senate and house, take up this legislation. in the aftermath of yet another tragedy on patriots day, the most patriotic
came in was call director mueller at the f.b.i. to get an update on this. because obviously we -- there no familiar in america -- family in america that wants justice than the state department family, believe me. so i wanted to know where we are. and i think we are making progress. now, there's video as you-all know. we have identified people. and they are building a case. we are going through the tedious, laborious, and very difficult process of gaining evidence from the part of the country which is dangerous. and working in a place where the standards are different and the expectations are different. we are working through that. but i can guarantee you this. i think all of you know because of bob mueller's service, and peoplera years that passed a law to allow him to serve, there is no more dedicated or capable leader of the f.b.i. and there is nobody more committed to do this. i have confidence in that. i also have confidence in something else. this president of the united states made it clear once before that he would do what was necessary to bring somebody to justice. and
